General Information

DINO LLC offers the longest-running off-road triathlons in Indiana.

In June, we will take XTERRA to Potato Creek State Park. Potato Creek State Park offers a beginner-friendly course. This new venue is convenient to our Chicago and Michigan area athletes, near South Bend Indiana.

In July, we'll return to Versailles with a mountain bike course that is absolutely top-notch. The run course proves a true test with some steep climbs along the 5-mile loop. It's the more physically challenging of the two races.

Each date features an off-road triathlon which earns you points in the XTERRA America Tour, plus a canoe / kayak division to challenge the non-swimmer or adventure racer. The DINO Triathlon courses will be well-marked but a bit more interesting than the standard road triathlon! 

WHAT IS A DINO TRIATHLON? 
DINO's Triathlons are the same format as a sprint to mid-distance triathlon; except the course is all unpaved: including surfaces such as dirt single-track, fire roads, and gravel. The scenery is fantastic, the challenge is refreshing, and the atmosphere is fun! You'll need to use a mountain bike and helmet, but otherwise, you won't need any special equipment to do the race.

DISTANCES*:

South Bend: 0.5 mi swim / 15 mi mountain bike / 7 km trail run

Versailles: 1 km swim / 13.5 mi mountain bike / 5 mi trail run

Canoe / Kayak: Double the swim course, same mountain bike and run

* Distances approximate and subject to change.

* Points for the XTERRA America Tour Series are given for the TRIATHLON only.
